Saturday, October 15th is the “official” HMD date this year, but like last year we welcome events throughout October and beyond – any day can be Home Movie Day! We’re continuing to encourage virtual events in 2022, while also welcoming in-person or hybrid gatherings when and where they are safe. We partnered with the Bay Area Video Coalition to produce a how-to guide for hosting virtual events – check it out below!

If you’re ready, you can SUBMIT YOUR HOME MOVIE DAY EVENT HERE! Please note that it takes up to 48 hours for your event to appear below once it’s submitted, so please check back. And for more info:

You can browse events from the list below (use the square icon to customize your view) and click for details and links to film screenings, workshops, and interactive community events happening throughout the year. Many events are online, so you can drop in on a Home Movie Day anywhere in the world.

If you’d like to find out how to view and share your own home movies, get in touch with your local HMD event host and explore some of the resources on this site.

If you are interested in hosting a Home Movie Day event and need more info, get started by reading our How-to Home Movie Day 2022. All of the great HMD resources from years past are still available in the About Home Movie Day section.

Home Movie Day Bay Area

October 16, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Bring your home movies between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. to be included in the program.

We can show 16mm, Regular-8mm, and Super 8mm film, as well as DVDs and files (feel free to email files to: hmdbayarea(at)gmail.com)

All films will be inspected and prepped for safe projection before being loaded onto our well maintained projectors, so if you would like to see your films up on the big screen bring them early.

1:00pm to 2:00pm: Bring your films for projection
1:30pm to 4:00pm: Home Movie Screening

If you aren’t able to get to ATA early on Saturday 10/16, but want to see your film at the screening, you can make an appointment to drop off one or two reels at Movette from September 25th to October 15th, but they must be picked up at ATA on Home Movie Day, October 16th, by 4pm.

Don’t let your movies decay – don’t throw them away – take them to Home Movie Day!
